“I think it’s a disgrace to the court and I think she should apologize to the court. I couldn’t believe it when I saw it,” he added.

Trump's response comes after Ginsburg blasted the presumptive GOP presidential nominee, saying she cannot "imagine what this place would be" like under Trump. She added that she might even move to New Zealand if he wins in November. 

“I can’t imagine what this place would be — I can’t imagine what the country would be — with Donald Trump as our president,” Ginsburg told the Times.

“For the country, it could be four years. For the court, it could be — I don’t even want to contemplate that,” she added.
